Establishing the Administrative Structure and Support for a Healthcare Transition Program
The goal of this chapter is to demonstrate key steps in the establishment of administrative structure and support to successfully develop a healthcare transition program across the variety of possible models. The intent is not to create a one-size-fits-all program but rather to consider the methodology of program development in a systematic way. The chapter will discuss a systematic approach to the development and support of a transition program utilizing an implementation science and logic model framework. Specific components of the six stages of implementation science (exploration and adoption, installation, initial implementation, full operation, innovation, and sustainability) are described as they relate to establishing structure and support for a transition program. Key inputs, resources, activities, output, outcomes, or impact/aims to consider at each stage of implementation are presented. Several examples of logic models are provided to explain application of the logic model framework in development of an administrative structure and support for a transition program.
